These Canada Geese came across the lake close to the water and kept going. The blurred background is a result of a slow shutter speed. I had not expected to take this shot. I was actually shooting some stationary subjects when I saw them coming. I did not have time to change my settings, so I just fired. What I got was this special photo.

Brilliant capture Bill. I know if I had attempted this shot it would have been all blurred.

This is such a grand photo! I love the blurred background. It keeps the focus on the geese. I like their expressions!
